The Oregon Garden
The kids and I visited the Oregon Garden with grandma yesterday as one of our spring break fun outings. What a fantastic plot of land, maintained primarily by volunteer garden lovers, it is an earthy paradise slowly awakening to spring. We were able to view flowers making their way up from the earth, a bird capturing and eating a fish from one of the ponds, frogs hopping and croaking, ducks nesting, swimming, and playing all in the backdrop of another gloriously sunny and unseasonably warm day. If I could get to Oregon once a season, I would love to take the kids here each season so that they could witness subtle and seasonal changes in nature up close and personal, this is a perfect place to do just that.
